    He is our third german shepherd so we named him Trey. We picked him up Friday afternoon and this is his first contact with his family since then:


    Dear Mamadog

    I miss you but not very much. In just a few days I have come from a short life of living in a commune where I had to hurry and eat my meals or watch bigger dogs get the food. They were constantly nipping me on the ears and nose and yelling at me. I was having to relieve myself inside a wire kennel on a dirt floor. Now I'm in an air conditioned place where I get all the good food I can eat....twice a day and an occasional treat. I can pee and poop on a soft, warm carpet and I get to go for walks in a big yard just about any time I want to...even in the middle of the night. Now this is the best part....you won't believe it. I have my own two humans. They hold me and rub me and do things for me almost constantly. I'm having a little trouble making them understand exactly what I want but if I work at it I believe that in a few weeks they will know everything I wish to do...24 hours a day.

    Your son

    Trey

    Ain't it just like a liberal - deciding what his dog thinks.

    I pity that poor puppy.

    How cute!! What did you name him? I like shepards, especially the longer-haired ones.

    We didn't know much about what we were doing with our first big male.....about 19 years ago. Then when he was about six years old we got a female puppy which looked almost exactly like he did. I'm not kidding you, he raised her. She was his dog. When we put their food bowls out in the afternoon he wouldn't let her take a bite until he finished his. We used to laugh at them and the female, Dandi actually made a game of it. She would run in next to her bowl just to get him to bark and growl.....feeding time at the zoo LOL

    I've looked at white shepherds and they're beautiful but it seems that the kennels around here have either the black and caramel or the black and silver.

    We have about nine tenths acre of our place inclosed in a chain link fence. It makes an ideal place for the dogs.
